Editorial Cartoonist, Joe Hoffecker, Elder Class of '82, to speak at Art Club

The next Art Club activity will  be  THURSDAY, MARCH 9th at 7:00 PM in the Art room, WITH GUEST SPEAKER JOE HOFFECKER.  

Joe Hoffecker (Elder Class of 1982) is a native Cincinnatian who began cartooning at age 11 with a monthly comic strip for his grade school newsletter. A child of considerable dinner table political conversationalist parents, Joe gravitated towards editorial cartooning as a teen, particularly following the works of the works of the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Jim Borgman and the Dayton Daily News’ Mike Peters. After cartooning for the student newspapers at Elder High School and Northern Kentucky University, Joe landed a freelance cartooning gig at The Downtowner, followed by being hired as a design artist and editorial cartoonist at the Cincinnati Business Courier in 1987. In addition to the Business Courier, Joe’s work appears weekly in several Business Courier sister business journals across the U.S., and he also pens a cartoon each week for the international Sports Business Journal. Joe has won numerous awards for his cartoons, including from the Society of Professional Journalists and the Press Club of Cleveland. A fan of the Queen City, Joe resides in the West End with his children and a golden retriever.

He will be discussing and showing his artwork as well as the process that he uses to create his political cartoons.  The presentation should last about 45 minutes with time to ask questions.

Joe credits Jim Borgman as making a huge impact on his career. Joe said this about Jim….”He is not only someone whose work I admire, but he’s a very gracious friend and I benefitted greatly from his advice and encouragement. If not for him, I would not be drawing today, and I can’t thank him enough”

To find examples of Joe's artwork you can follow the link below...

Any student who is interested in art or cartooning is welcome to attend!  Any questions please feel free to stop by the Art room to speak with Mrs. Plagge or Mr. Buetsche.

The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards has recognized the exceptional vision of our nation’s youth, and provided a singular opportunity for students to be noticed for their creative talents. It has grown to be the longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens in the U.S., and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers.  Students’ submissions are judged on the Awards’ core values:  originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. The Art Academy of Cincinnati (AAC) is producing the 2016 Regional Scholastic Art Awards of Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana on their urban campus in historic Over-the-Rhine.

Approximately 1,000 winning pieces of art will be displayed, out of nearly 5,000 pieces submitted and judged. Gold Key, Silver Key and Honorable Mention recognition and scholarships will be awarded to students. Educators, media, vendors, students and their families will attend the events.  Gold Key recipients go on to compete for national medals in an Exhibit and National Award Ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York, NY.
